As he walks out and away from the Meadow, Erinhue spots a growing group of people holding hands. Drawing closer, the bard realizes that he knew many, no, all of the faces standing in that ever expanding circle. Seeing him approach they called out to him.
"'Hue, over here. We've come to walk with you."
The bard stopped by his emotions took time to gaze upon each beloved face and saw support and true friendship beaming back at him.
Not knowing what to say and knowing that no words were necessary Erinhue mustered up the courage to beam his very best star bright grin.
"Long as you lot would come along
I deem it reason for a song
A song that tells us how the end
Begins anew among ones friends
And when one steps out into the dark
Good friends around make it a lark
And when ones burdon make them fall
The love of friends helps you through all
I walk out now to a new road
Not knowing how or where it goes
And though I leave my heart behind
I have it still, through friendship kind
The road winds onward towards its end
Made brighter now by these dear friends
I cannot thank you all enough and I will carry your thoughts with me like a shield in this last stop on a long and very dark road. This place, and all of you, have been the light that helped me through. I love you all
